If you’re buying in Vancouver, you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t aim high.
Sitting just south of Science World’s ever-changing lights at the Olympic Village in Southeast False Creek, this building is in the perfect spot for anyone who enjoys downtown, but doesn’t necessarily want to be living amid its traffic-jammed chaos.
At $1.4 million it’s affordable – as far as Vancouver goes, of course – yet still boasts the best that the building has to offer. It is the penthouse, after all.
With views of the North Shore mountains, the infamous Vancouver skyline, and all the happenings around False Creek, you’ll be thankful that those windows go from floor to ceiling.
Take a stroll through the patio doors and you’re sitting pretty on a 400-sq-ft private rooftop deck, which opens up the living space quite a bit.
Further into the building proper you’ll find a bike room, common room, two fitness centres (for twice the workout), a hot tub, pool, sauna, yoga studio, and more.
You’ll basically never have to leave… and why would you want to?

Elevator Pitch: This penthouse suite features views of the mountains, the skyline, and the water. Located in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods that Vancouver has to offer, it is merely a skip and a hop away from downtown, but still offers the peace and quiet only found outside the downtown core.
Highlight: A 400-sq-ft private rooftop patio basically turns this building into your very own castle – and you’ll be sitting like a king at the very top.
Potential turn off: The condo could be a bit more spacious, but the additional 400 sq. ft. of outdoor space will do wonders during the sunny seasons.
